    they show up in any diary that has anything to do with guns and gun control.

    I'm surprised you've never heard of it...

      What I don't understand is why that keeps people from organizing/strategizing. I have never understood the inability to ignore. Make the counter argument and walk away. Let them argue with themselves.

      •  "Don't feed the trolls" misses so much (0+ / 0-)

        I'll just leave this here. I can't believe I'm hearing that from a progressive, let alone one who works for a influential progressive website.

        people just stayed away.  If you take a look at other gun issue diaries before Friday, you'll find lots of people saying they just didn't comment in them once the RKBA crowd swooped in and started harassing, derailing, distorting, and provoking.  Look at their history of mass-HRing after deliberately provoking too.  

        Remember why one of the more popular posters on the BP Gulf issue GBCWd.

        I think they're failing to recognize that Friday's tragedy has changed everything, and a lot of people who stayed away from these discussions are now standing up and telling them No More.
